Device gives shock: Why do we get motion sickness? Device ends with nausea
Motion sickness has to do with our balance system (the labyrinth). Our inner ear has sensory structures that allow us to maintain balance when we are still and in motion.
When we are in a car or boat, for example, the brain can be “confused”, as it does not understand that we are stationary (sitting or reading), but at the same time, in motion (with the displacement of the vehicle or ship, for example). ).
That is, the vision cannot coordinate with the stimuli of the rest of the body, which do not remain still.
For most people, this confusion does not cause any problems. However, in some, the inner ear cannot orient itself properly, causing nausea and dizziness.
